following thursday's escalation of events when the kenyan parliament voted to do just that. joshua got eyes following events for us in that mosque on the cat crossed and now for the latest developments the job to ripen russia russian upper house. it's that says it'll stand by the outcome of the referendum was the likelihood of that it'll be disappointed. i think it's pretty unlikely at the upper house of parliament in the kremlin and the russian typically doesn't get the results from its look and four which is increasingly appearing like the kind of de facto ruler official annexation of crimea of cancer developing very quickly we have a referendum in crimea in its posts to be held in may. then at the end of march. now moved up to march sixteen. something seemed to really be on fast forward to the crimean the parliamentary delegation from crimea to parliament is in moscow now meeting with representatives from the russian parliament
6:33 am
talking with them grow into them up in a bid to speak here the upper house of parliament who seems to be welcoming them and by extension crimea with open arms so with the region under the kind of unofficial russian military occupation and a referendum held in a very crunch time for him to just over a week from now i think it's unlikely that the russians will be able to engineer the result are looking for. josh i e the science fantasy us president barack obama and his russian counterpart by my feet and they held their second conversation in a week what exactly can i do that well it's still the two leaders very far the fundamental reading of the situation and it's that really deep split over the very nature of whom and why institutions in ukraine are legitimate but i think it's the leaders coming to any sort of agreement really being able to talk seriously about negotiations the prudent step is to think that the new outpost in echo beach leadership in kiev is
6:34 am
entirely legitimate keeps referring to an unconstitutional. who for his part obama seems to be taking the position that any referendum held under this kind of unofficial russian military occupation and creamy itself would be illegitimate so it's really hard to get this two sides talking of course. then with united states raising the specter of these events economic sanctions. that also has raised the russian choir so at this point it seems like the two sides are talking past each other the russian political and economic elite certainly would be afraid of any further deepening economic isolation that may be the one issue. where would she like he would have to give. though at this point again with the two sides so far apart on the fundamental drivers of the conflict but it's really hard to get at square one josh we mentioned it is that these advance that the us and

completely wrong. i'd say that shroud of mystery over the queen's founder does remain on the day it's all speculation and komodo is actually just a pseudonym for a group of co tears that created the whole system. i think they are to be a lot more questions about the founder really at issue today at the amount of money that they claim deals with some estimates that the global market for it at around seven billion dollars as i think it will continue to be a lot of questions about who's really behind it as in pickling prices in both prominence and controversy. he's ok so the question remains then we still don't know who exactly is behind so i took italy thank you very much for that and thank you for joining us usher in an ad this edition of the state and boston couple more headlines than interesting. welcome to the business into the lime

6:48 am
well as seventy. it's a bit of that and this takes of the general market costs as in europe but that they're coming back from a very low base. will the car industry seem real growth in the next couple of years so will it continue to dump on loan defaults and essentially i think it's very hard to predict every artist them that they wish to take the stronger positive status as the odd that i think we've we've seen much we just opposite the ad the recent than the past five years somerset be happy that the year twenty fourteen starts well. in most markets that is a sign full monty montgomery up and they even tried yet. we take a step by step. i think the important pieces that have mentally me as say goodbye to the crisis he is immensely open ourselves up for some more positive news in the years to come. the cx is part of the mass market segment in which has taken a real hit during the downturn in europe. how are you looking to grow when the next few years. what more you betting on so to speak to the oak grove vengeance. the loss of

6:50 am
our girls and just wanted to jump. we do have ample opportunities to grow the brand in europe. we don't need to go beyond. ironically two percent to the sales the day that they are in europe are you looking to diversify your position away from the continent. we actually focusing on both sides that we do have read them but you need to grow within europe that sell focus a care in on the one that obviously we have some very strong at first was held outside europe we have a strong position also africa now we have one of a major base of the players get jerry and not get their young grandmother five percent said that the casino industry off that north africa. looking now at six found that stand the whole every generally have strong base is set for us in the history of the psyche i very strongly the stuff growing markets with the potential for this huge of an embassy we are playing overseas and then mexico where we have i done brad said when he started ten years ago party now a strong
6:51 am
day it was two percent staff very key position. what in the last minute snag on the awesomeness of this law made up words outside europe them as well but we caught squid or entity so we have to focus its number one on the european markets be kind road don't know that a week and that we exploit set off for cba in europe and that would be to strengthen the law would be stopping at the price outside europe seattle schools is part of the volkswagen group and deception has been a nice that that cs has been underperforming of the brands in the vaults logging coupe in the past ten years with the cf eighteen eighty in to one degree then. this year with espn to sell you can see i should get the voyeur grounds of the most vital votes by disco dancing and i seek to provide a very individual and unique footprints as all the customer. one rather small focusing on functionality and practicality we are not small
6:52 am
the focusing on the combination of that day to day use ability but i see that with that much more dynamic in a much more to say exhilarating profile fall custom as compounds that we actually growing together as a bundle of rods that's the unique ed that the unique strengths of both saddam group is without a ticket each other so much grace he really going into the competitive said funds add dates he elected to the customer profiles. we actually attracting different customers top brass and we're happy that it's indeed we now see a picture and that the funny enough cf is not smoke spirit of the customer and said the new funding ltd on the specific leave. guides our way into the future. see i've missed its target date to be profitable in twenty thirteen it will be profitable in twenty fourteen we out we are growing all crabby and run our revenue base that was to be some time before we become a sustainable profit above ground as ot game as a management team to reach that
6:53 am
point said as quickly as possible. contradicts in the current european apartment when we can reach that how fast that we are watching the city and all and secretarial ads that make sure that we are staying at this end cos the fish nemo theme in the call cost structure. very effective and that's enough that the deep lying around and see with the with the top production lines to be able to produce only need to produce enough it has only given the doghouse as sufficient said team boss of saying extremely flexible. but the main thrust of our work is an expanding the brand itself to make the brown strong which is showing real strong signal south of strength in the year thirteen and fourteen last putting our energy and talent distribution networks that that's really see this huge job. selby to be at trying to approach this point. as soon as possible to become sustainable lump sum profitable and i see a strong brands and according to europe and outside will be a present. the focus of the david o'neill who must
6:54 am
beat spain because is seen to be all for the spanish economy some relief this interest in hiring bach and sustained by what's been downsizing in other parts of europe that are you hiring of the moment. that the cia said the suspect say we have lost him in our attempt to reduce the fixed costs so the button next to your content in de pieces to dependency that busy on on your cost me half sadly we have refused all six labour costs. some people i see the direct elements and the cause of our business we've just kind of sort of fifteen century and may the force of the production eyes as we have more team odds that we as he predicted last year so this shows me that we're trying to be really flexible. that's on to adopt all current team on the lyric happy to see that we can actually kind of people saying to the company targets to attend three in a bad about updating it shows that we are growing that we can grow in swing but that was that without throwing a teen moms and dads and even
6:55 am
on other c the b ed the interest free hats on these outings just amazing dance is so much that safety mom for work it's laid out now and then in spain and i'm optimistic that be to continue our drive to your upbeat than when it comes to the states of the spanish at car industry who want so why do you think that we've seen this was the agents within the space car industry in the past year or so. i think it's a fact of south cobwebs off many people over the last thing he is here the relationship between labor force. and companies in spain has seen map has seen them at small flexibility local flexibility in the last two years. that thing that the entire focus on labor costs is just one element that costs of unstable and i would say within in the ut hippie minutes instead of having to john and cost structures. you see your team lost out to spain found itself now mid point between these these these boundaries but the flexibility of play that has increased the day
6:56 am
relation with that the workforce has shifted in all honesty when i went in with our neighboring nations that the two to the fight a common strategy fall for the brand so this has buried its a traditional conventional employee unemployment pp somewhat past tense in the last two years and has made a scene that could be modernization nothing that's that has to be a help to keep the strength of the industry in spain. it is now at very productive days that to bn and the missing day it was due to hard work is not about coming second stab sleep cycles. some people say to mr stockman that that's what no one is about to sacrifice a lot today that their salaries and to some extent illegal blocking hours. but this is not of the ipod as effective as a snapping its not one longer working else but obviously in there and that period of time re use or do you see that's the call ups of ministry. time and unemployment growing to
6:57 am
twenty five percent the people they'd like in all markets lead to real as the two web log on and didn't bother that's normal. i mean awful and that the devotee is that's that then that's it we have been able to grow our employment in the years we had the industry in spain came down and that the period with out the unemployment rate and staying through the employment rate of sea at their zenith on stable so we've managed to do to keep the wet soils than a crm and our people together and an end on board in the critical period of the company at the extended baby and much more flexible now with working saturday since friday fifth successive second shift was employed to do to be able to too few selected with the moms there you see in the market. right so we have the time the jug and stockman thank you very much indeed for speaking to is that from the geneva motor show that was yet in shock and the president. all of the spanish comic it's the act and when i wouldn't throw up this edition all the business into the next
